It happens nearly every convention, I get the seminar schedule read through it, read through it again and think, boy none of those sound interesting. Well much to my surprise EVERY seminar I go to I come out with some new tidbit. More often than not about half way through a seminar I usually think, I sure wish “so & so” from our staff was here to hear that.

So as the title says, “Don’t judge the seminar by it’s title.” Even topics on asset classes that you don’t normally sell can be beneficial. There is always something you can excavate out of an apparently unrelated topic that you might be able to use in a similar manner and apply to the assets you typically sell. Maybe that seminar you just sat through will spark a conversation with another attendee AFTER the meeting or in the hallway that leads to a meaningful discus-sion on some unrelated topic that turns into the “best idea ever.” If you’re really lucky maybe that idea will MAKE OR SAVE you some money or headaches in the future.

Taking the time to attend is the key to being an active member in the association. I am fortunate to attend several conventions each year and thoroughly enjoy my time spent with those who attend. So I challenge you.... when you read the seminar schedule and don’t see anything that appeals to you… GO ANYWAY! Go open minded and listen to the speaker, I will guarantee there is something in that seminar that you can apply to your business or personal life that will be beneficial to you now or in the future.

From The President

Why The Auctioneers Convention?

Has this year been a challenge for you with the aftermath of COVID and endeavoring to find your new normal for you personally and in business? Whatever your status is and the goals you have for the future, I would like to encourage you to attend this coming year’s Colorado Auctioneers Convention. The current board has been working hard to bring sessions that would help you in developing that new normal for you and in business.

Regardless of your role in this ever-expanding and everchanging business, our goal is to assist you in achieving your goals.

The Colorado Auctioneers Association has some of the best auctioneers and auction companies in the country. The convention offers an opportunity to network with them and help hone your business practices for future success in the years to come.

As a Contract Auctioneer and Bid Caller, I have always loved to see high level competitions. This coming year, we are going to have not only the State Competition, Ringman, and Team Competition, but the 2023 Challenge of Champions Competition.

The Challenge of Champions contest is for those who have previously won the coveted (Go Your Best) Colorado State Auctioneer Championship. This contest is only held once every five years. Our last recipient was Shawn Hagler. Who will be this year’s recipient of the 2023 Challenge of Champions at our 65th annual convention? If you are a past champion, we would encourage you to enter and win money and the newly designed belt buckle. I am excited to see who will take home the prize!

Over the past year, our board has had many challenges and I am proud to say they have all endured to serve with excellence. When you consider high level contests that you could compete in, I would encourage you to enter the Mile High Auctioneer Open Bid Calling Contest. This is a contest that draws some of the best auctioneers in the country. This allows you to develop friendships across the country and increase your exposure, networking and skill-enhancing objectives.

Excellence is something we have to work hard to get. As a bid caller, I have enjoyed competing and training with fellow auctioneers. At this year’s convention, we will have several State, World, and International Auctioneer Champions.

By entering these contests, you are rubbing elbows with the best. Will you be nervous, yes, but channeling those nerves to better your skill level will help you become a better and more effective auctioneer or ringman.

I am so excited to see each of you at all of these events! As an added bonus, we also have a marketing contest to go along with all the other events. So be sure to bring your best marketing materials and enter them in the marketing contest. Let’s get in and have fun!

Many consider two-time World Champion, Scott Goodhue, to be at the top of the industry. What some don’t know, however, is that it took almost 30 years to get to where he is.

Sponsor Introduction

Hello fellow CAA members,

I wanted to introduce myself. My name is Rita Adams, and I am an Account Executive for All Auction Sales, and a fellow member of the CAA! I grew up in Iowa and have been in South Dakota for 35 years. Iowa will always have a special place in my heart, but South Dakota is home, and I couldn’t be happier about that! I love adventure and Colorado is one of my favorite places to enjoy. I have family there and get there as often as I can!

All Auction Sales is a family-owned online auction website where auctioneers can list their auctions. We’re based in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and believe our online presence is a better way to find auctions. My favorite thing about working for All Auction Sales is hearing the success stories from the auctioneers our company has worked with to grow their auction audience. My second most favorite part is the many different and interesting personalities I have the pleasure to indulge in conversation with. I imagine you all can relate. I am proud to be someone that believes customer service is important. Building lasting relationships and taking great care of people while helping their business grow is what I love to do. I have worked with a few of you but there are several I have not worked with yet and I would love the opportunity to. Below are some facts about how we can help your business grow. Please reach out to me if you have any questions and I hope to work with you one day!

If you always do good work...

Lloyd “Mike” Michael is the Owner / President, of Michael Auction Service in Julesburg. Michael Auction Service is one of the leading auction companies in Northeastern Colorado, and the Nebraska panhandle. They conduct more than 50 auctions a year for customers, in addition to many charitable auctions. His business began in 1943 when Mike’s father, Lloyd Michael Sr., would sell chickens and eggs outside the local auction barn. At the young age of five, Mike would go with his dad to the sale barn, and dressed in his fancy cowboy gear and whip, he would chant along with the auctioneers as livestock were sold. He was only 12 years old when he called his first auction. It was an estate sale, held at the “Hobby Shop,” in Julesburg. It was then that the auction bug bit him and he knew he was going to be an auctioneer. Mike began to study books on antiques, collectibles, farm equipment, and scale model farm equipment. Today, he is one of the foremost experts on farm toys and collectibles in the United States.

Michael Auction Services has been built on a solid, honest reputation. Requests for his services come from all over the United States. Prior to an auction held in 2010, Mike received a surprise phone call. The upcoming auction featured a 1907 White steam car. The caller ID read “Hollywood Studios, California.” The phone call has from the late night talk show host, Jay Leno. Leno was inquiring about the steam car to add to his collection. In the end, the car sold for $181,000, though Leno was not the buyer.

So how does an auctioneer stay on top of this information and obtain knowledge? For Mike, he watches market trends and values across the country. In his own words, “I like to keep track of other auction results.” This is supported by his belief, “there will always be a need for our industry because it is the very best way to achieve true market value ; we are problem solvers.”

Mike’s favorite auction memory was when he had a 3-day auction selling Nebraska’s largest Antique Collection. But what about his biggest challenge he has faced growing his business throughout the years? According to him, it has been “Getting people to believe you can get the job done and done right.” Wow! Hearing that statement from someone who has worked hard, studied and gained experience in the auction industry, definitely can give each of us a new perspective that we are not in it alone. In support of this, he states that, “If you always do good work, you will always have good work to do.”

In relation to marketing, “word of mouth” still holds true for Mike and his company, however, he has grown with technology in utilizing Facebook and has also been known for creative marketing with a radio show.

But not all auctions and the work we put into them “sunshine and smiles.” Many times we are faced with obstacles, frustrations, limitations and such. When asked, “What is a limitation you have experienced and how did you overcome it?” Mike replied by stating, “All your auctions are going to be a success no matter how much you advertise. Sometimes you have to learn to say, “No.””

Mike contributes his membership with the CAA by being invited by Hall of Fame member, John Nichols, in 1989. And at the 2000 CAA Convention, Mike held the presidential seat on the CAA Board of Directors and ultimately was crowned the 2000 Colorado State Champion Auctioneer. His induction into the CAA Hall of Fame was in 2011 by Harold Unrein giving a heartfelt introduction of Mike’s career and service in the auction industry, the CAA and to his family, church and community.

According to him, the best part of being a member of the CAA is in “getting to see other auctioneers at the convention and renewing old friendships.” His specialties & expertise are in the areas of Antiques, Collectibles, Farm and Antique Toys, Coins, Firearms, Arrowheads, and Antique Autos. Knowledge and experience such as this is a valuable resource to not only the Colorado auction industry, but also to members of the CAA. He is willing to share his knowledge and wisdom, so…..if you ever find yourself in need of knowledge or assistance, please feel free to call upon “Mike” Michael to share with you what he has learned. You will always find him with a smile on and cheering on the CU Buffaloes.
